KWTX quoted an Afghan official as saying that at least five coal miners have been killed in a tunnel collapse. Mr Mohammad Ali Hassani, the district chief in Dar-i-Suf, in the northern Samangan province, said another four miners were rescued when the 800 yard tunnel collapsed Tuesday. Mr Hassani said that another miner is missing.

Mr Hassani said that the mine, like many in rural Afghanistan, was dug with little regard for safety, and that those working in it were poor laborers with no other way to make a living.
